The Center regularly has various
opportunities for student interns throughout the year,
including the fall and spring semesters and winter and summer
breaks. Internships at the Center for Health and Social
Research give students a chance to gain real world experience
by working on leading edge research projects with dedicated
professionals from a range of disciplines. In addition to
gaining great experience to compliment classroom learning, our
internship opportunities allow students to improve their
portfolio or resume. Interns have a first-hand opportunity to
learn research and project operations and gain valuable
experience with the most recent technologies.
By interacting with faculty, staff, and other students they
learn to see the larger community from a new perspective, and
they develop new and greater confidence by working on real
issues in a real world setting. Several students have also
worked as part-time research assistants for the center after
completing their internship.
The CHSR is currently seeking student interns for an externally-funded telephone youth health subject recruitment survey.
